OK, I know this is crazy. But after looking at that other thread, I thought I would try another one about first time 'burst buyers who never let their guitars go away. I was a semi-pro musician and bought one in 2001 - I think??? A dealer here in CO was going to a show, and brought it in for a looksee before he left. He opened the case and it was over. Not real flamey, but a '59. I traded a ton of cool guitars for it and some cash and am glad ---- really glad. Do not play pro anymore but here she is... 9-0289 - you have seen her before ---anyone else?

I believe I have kept this one longer than any others besides my first one.
I got this 58 about 25 years ago:

I think this one needs to be enshrined in the "Top Ten Guitar Faces Ever!" Hall of Fame.:headbange
